WORLDCOMP'15 Tutorial: Dr. Asoke Nath

Last modified 2015-07-12 11:11

Introduction to Cryptography and Network Security
Dr. Asoke Nath
Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science
St. Xavier's College (Autonomous), Kolkata, India

Date & Time: July 27, 2015 (05:40pm - estimated duration: about 2+ hours)
Location: Silver Room


    Due to tremendous growth in Internet technologies now the security of data has become a significant challenge in all spheres of our lives. There is no guarantee that the data will not be intercepted by some hacker during communication (between one client machine and another client machine or a server machine). E-mail helps us a lot to send message quickly from one machine to another but the mode of such communication is not at all secure or safe. A hacker may tamper the mail before it reaches to the real destination. The confidential message or data should not be sent in unencrypted form as it may be intercepted by some hacker. The encryption should be hard enough so that the hacker can not apply any brute force method to retrieve the original data. Any kind of transaction processes in internet should be done in a secure manner. While doing e-banking or e-business one should be very careful about input data and the output data. There are many more areas where the data should not be tampered during any type of transaction such as on-line train or air-line booking, on-line examination etc. Cryptography is a subject which primarily deals with how one can modify a readable text or document/object to unreadable text or document/ object. Cryptography is a two-fold process: (a) encryption algorithm by which one can modify the readable text to some encrypted form that would make it unreadable; and (b) the inverse of encryption, namely, decryption, which extracts the original text or object from encrypted form. The encryption or the decryption methods are generally of two types: (i) Symmetric Key Cryptography where one key is used for encryption as well as decryption processes and (ii) Public key cryptography where we use one key called public key for encryption purpose and another key called private key which is used for decryption purpose. The encryption key is distributed to all senders and the decryption key is distributed to the receiver only. In this presentation the authors will focus on different symmetric key algorithms including some recent trends in symmetric key encryption methods. The authors will also discuss the public key cryptography including RSA algorithm.


    The objective of the presentation is to explore and to introduce various implementations of efficient cryptography methods. The authors will discuss some simple and then more advanced symmetric key and asymmetric key cryptography methods, namely (i) Caeser cipher method, (ii) Modified caeser cipher method, (iii)Hill cipher method, (iv) Diffiehellman key exchange method, (v) Playfair method, (vi) Meheboob, Saima and Asoke(MSA) algorithm and some recent methods of symmetric key algorithm. Various public key algorithms will also be discussed; such as the well known Rivest Shamir and Adleman (RSA) method. This presentation will be informative for both, the beginners and experts in the field.

    From 1978-1981 Dr. Nath was actively involved in research work in Theoretical study on Crystal field theory. He did his post doctoral work on “Chaos in non linear optics” from 1984-1987 and published several papers in renowned International Journals. During his Ph.D. work and post doctoral work he has done massive computational work in main frame computer. From 1986 he completely switched over to computer science. Attended various National and International seminars, conference on computer science. Presently he is involved in research work on Crytography, Steganography, Image Processing, Green Computing, E-learning. He has published more than 130 papers in International Journals, conference proceedings both national and international. His paper on “Multi way feedback encryption standard(ver-I)” received the best paper award in International Conference ICETTR-2013 held at Nagpur in September 2013, India. He delivered key note addresses, tutorials on Cryptography and Network Security in Worldcomp 2012,2013,2014 held at Las Vegas, USA, ICETTR-2013 held at Nagpur, IEEE WICT 2011 held at Mumbai University, International conference held at Surat in March 2012, IEEE WICT 2013 held at Hanoi Vietnam, IEEE ICMIRA held at SMVDU, Jammu in December 2013, IEEE International Conference on Devices Circuits and Communications (ICDCCom-2014) held in Sept 2014 at BIT Mesra(Ranchi), IEEE conference held at Hotel Pride Kolkata in Nov 2014 . He is the member of board of Editors in more than 30 International Journals in Computer Science and Information Technology. He is also Editor in Chief of International Journal on Network Security. He is a life member of CSI Calcutta chapter, member of MIR Labs(USA).
